Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. You should have this handy for reference. The Grasshopper Primer - Second Edition The second edition of the Grasshopper Primer is out and it wouldn't have been possible without the tremendous contribution from Rajaa Issa. Rajaa is a developer at Robert McNeel and Associates and is the author of several other Rhino plugins including ArchCut and the ever popular PanelingTools. This revision provides a much more comprehensive guide than the first edition, weighing in at almost 160 pages with over 70 new pages dedicated to creating your own customized scripting components. This printing coincides with two events; the first being the new release of Grasshopper version 0.6.0007 which proves to be a giant upgrade to the already robust Grasshopper platform. Existing users will find subtle, and some not so subtle changes to how data is stored in the current version; making some previous definitions outdated or even unusable.
CirclePack and circle packing General Comments: My primary research interests revolve around circle packing: connections to analytic function theory, Riemann surfaces, computational conformal structures, and applications. (see my curriculum vita.) Computational Design Sandbox On April 3-4, I had the pleasure of co-teaching a computational design and fabrication workshop together with Gonçalo Castro Enriques (X-REF) at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), Portugal. The 2-day workshop, titled “Performative Morphologies“, was
RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building. The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure.
Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Spend an some time with the creator of Grasshopper, David Rutten, to learn the fundamental of Grasshopper. Fabrication Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves. ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

grasshopper code . a collection of codes & grammars for Grasshopper, a generative modeling tool for Rhinoceros. 3D Hilbert Curve This definition generates a 3D Hilbert Curve, a continuous fractal space-filling curve. Animate Sketching of a Parametric Truss Previous studies on the timer component were based on understanding it’s use. This time, I tried to implement it in a geometric design task. Moreover, manipulating timer component to change the regular animation of parameters. Time does not have to be equally divided sequences. Rather, new possibilities may be emerged with different time flows. Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper This Grasshopper definition is proof of concept for a VB component that unrolls developable surfaces to the XY plane. To make the component, I’ve adapted a rhinoscript by Andrew Kudless (of Matsys) to run in VB, enlisting the help of CCA student Ripon DeLeon to write the code.This example uses the VB component to create unrolled surfaces from 4 curves that I have distorted using the cage edit command in rhino. To use the definition on your own projects, simply choose any 4 curves to loft between in sequential order.
Marilyn Jordan Taylor, Dean and Paley Professor Academic Year 2011 - 2012 GOALS, PRIORITIES, AND INITIATIVESSeptember 7, 2011 I'm very pleased to take this opportunity to set forth the goals and initiatives for the School of Design in the academic year 2011-2012. In doing so, I hope to engage each and every one of you--students, staff, alumni, faculty, university colleagues, overseers, trustees, and friends--in achieving our extraordinary potential. first experiments in grasshopper « Growth Typologies lisa on 12|10|2011 Filled under: day-to-day, process Project: Fluent Gardens Hi! The Unexpected Way Philosophy Majors Are Changing The World Of Business 25Share Synopsis Here are a few reasons that philosophy majors will become the entrepreneurs who are shaping the business world. Dr. Damon Horowitz quit his technology job and got a Ph.D. in philosophy -- and he thinks you should too. "If you are at all disposed to question what's around you, you'll start to see that there appear to be cracks in the bubble," Horowitz said in a 2011 talk at Stanford.
